What is a Garden 2019

17 MAY - 3 JUNE 2019

Secondary school pupils have been invited to take part in a series of workshops with Artist Caroline Schofield. Caroline’s work is driven by an engagement with craft and a curiosity about narratives contained within materials from industrial steel, stone, fabric, string and found objects. She manipulates and creates installations with these items referencing personal histories, place, people and memory. Her current work focuses on materials to form a mediation with people on memory.

“What is a Garden?” will see two schools - Meánscoil San Nioclás, An Rinn and Coláiste Chathail Naofa, Dungarvan - explore themes of gardening and social spaces through visual art. The students will work closely with the Lismore Castle Arts education team and the artist to create artworks inspired by the Gardens of Lismore Castle.

Given the unique setting of Lismore Castle Arts within Lismore Castle’s Historic Gardens, the project seeks to broaden student’s ideas of shared outdoor space. The completed artworks will be showcased at Lismore Castle Arts upon completion and the results of the project will then be gifted back to the schools to go on display in a location of their choosing.

The project will be open to view in Lismore Castle Gardens from 17 May - 3 June.
